Brother Intros Three Networkable MFC Printers

| News

Brother on Monday introduced three new flatbed laser multi-function center (MFC) printers that offer network connectivity via an Ethernet port, a USB 2.0 port, up to 30ppm print speeds, 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution, 300-sheet paper capacity and 32MB base memory, expandable to 544MB. The base unit, MFC-8460N, includes all those features and sells for US$399.99. It will ship next month.

Moving up the line, the $499.99 MFC-8860DN, which will ship in April, adds on duplex printing, copying, fax sending and receiving and scanning, enabling businesses to save money by using both sides of the paper. Finally, the $599.99 MFC-8870DW, which will be available in May, has all the features of its siblings but adds on 802.11b/g wireless networking.

All three printers require Mac OS X v10.2.4 or higher. Optional accessories available through Brother include a high-yield toner cartridge that produces 7,000 sheets, or twice the amount provided by the cartridge that ships with the printers, and an extra 250-sheet paper tray.

Product pages were not available on the Brother Web site as The Mac Observer posted this article.
